Published

on

VAIO is the first company in the world to successfully mass produce a 3-D molded, carbon fiber laptop with the Uni-direction carbon fiber. Using technology only previously available to the car racing industry, molded carbon fiber makes the new VAIO®Z lighter at just under 1kg^.  Moreover, with all around carbon fiber protection, the VAIO®Z offers exceptional toughness, and its turbo charged with unprecedented speed.  In fact, the new VAIO®Z features the same powerful processing speed previously only found in the PCs of the most demanding fields.

Although previously gaining popularity, mobile computing has never been more essential.  With more professionals and students having to work and collaborate remotely these days, their mobile computing needs have increased.

Of course, there are inherent risks with mobility as seen with mobile phone usage, for example.  Everyone is well acquainted with the challenge of keeping mobile devices from getting damaged and now, more so with laptops.  Both have become indispensable investments that make work, learning and connecting socially possible. So, when they are damaged, it can disrupt users’ needs.

The new VAIO®Z was designed for today’s mobile computing needs. The VAIO®Z’s lighter yet more durable design makes mobility less cumbersome, more practical and safer for work and learning needs.

No more having to carry a heavy laptop from place to place or even room to room. No more worrying that this valued work partner and learning tool will get damaged, and no more worrying about securing your privacy.

The VAIO®Z offers incredible power through 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and new Intel® integrated graphics on its 14-inch, high-def 4k LCD panel.

Additional features include crystal clear sound with Dolby Audio speakers. No more struggling to hear teammates or teachers on video conferencing calls.

Camera shutter and mic mute shortcuts for privacy, 180-degree open/close screen for easy collaboration and increased battery life to keep you connected for hours.

Plus, the VAIO®Z will get to know you. It is VAIO User Sensing engineering combines human sensing technology and biometrics to make the VAIO®Z a truly personal experience. The VAIO®Z uses face authentication to log you in when you are seated before it, and it keeps you logged as long as you are seated in front of it. No more having to remember your password or worrying someone will use it. When you are away, it locks automatically to secure your privacy. 

Kaoru Hayashi, Director, Vice President and Head of PC Business at VAIO Corporation proudly states, “It is with great pleasure that we introduce VAIO®Z to the world. With over a decade of relentless carbon fiber research, VAIO has succeeded in creating and mass producing the world’s first 3D molded full carbon chassis for laptop PCs. 

VAIO has developed a unique process of working with carbon fiber to achieve beautifully contoured lines and the flexible molding of carbon fiber, that was previously difficult to mass produce.  The achievement of harnessing carbon fiber’s full potential of lightness and durability is both revolutionary and evolutionary as we continue looking ahead. With this evolution, the new VAIO®Z offers exceptional performance, lightness, endurance, now with true ruggedness, and without compromise, all converging into one elegant design. With VAIO®Z as our flagship model, we hope it is the start of VAIO’s future array of laptop PC developments.

We also want to use this proud moment to share VAIO’s redefined mission. Like VAIO®Z, we have reshaped our mission statement to show our commitment to our technical ingenuity that is deeply engrained in our DNA.  Therefore, our renewed mission statement is “Illuminate your spirit with VAIO. Accelerating innovation through design and technology.”  

Our vision is to make VAIO PCs a valued partner to customers who, like VAIO, are the world’s innovators, creators, and relentless leaders in their fields.  It is our hope that our VAIO PCs become an enduring presence that inspires our customers as they forge ahead to meet and exceed their goals no matter the challenge.

Published

on

boAt is all set to launch their line of gaming headphones, “Immortal”. Their flagship model, called boAt Immortal 1000D, includes Dolby Atmos for a premium gaming and entertainment experience. The headphones also come with 50mm drivers for high fidelity audio, regardless of the content played.


In a recent report released by KPMG, the online gaming segment in India is projected to grow at a CAGR of 21 per cent over FY21-FY25 to reach a size of INR 29,000 crore. Of the total size, online casual gaming accounts for 44 per cent of the total online gaming revenues. Overall growth in digital consumption sophistication has helped online gaming become a mainstream entertainment option.

Asia-Pacific has emerged as one the largest demand drivers for gaming accessories including PCs, consoles, audio and smartphones.

On Foraying into the gaming category, Sameer Mehta, Co-Founder, boAt said “We are very excited to launch our very first gaming headphone – the Immortal 1000D in India. The Indian gaming industry has grown to become one of the world’s largest e-gaming markets due to the fast and affordable connectivity of the internet and smartphones, and we want to provide specialized audio accessories and peripherals to professional as well as casual gamers and enthusiasts. The pandemic further elevated online gaming as an alternative entertainment option for many people, including a large part of our boAthead community. “

Commenting on this collaboration, Pankaj Kedia, Managing Director, Emerging Markets, Dolby Laboratories said, “We are delighted to partner with boAt for their first gaming headphone, Immortal 1000D. Consumers are now seeking higher quality and higher precision sound in gaming. Dolby Atmos will add depth and dimension to headphone audio, making it easier for gamers to detect easy-to-miss sounds and improve the accuracy of their gameplay. It will provide impressive clarity and detail to create a more realistic and thrilling experience. “

Excited about the launch of Immortal 1000D, Akshay Ahuja, Category Leader – Consumer Electronics, Amazon India said “boAt is very special to Amazon as we partnered to grow this business manifold and learnt things together in this really rewarding journey of working together. boAt is a leader today as its passion, quest for perfection and speed of execution have always been top-notch, helping us provide the latest trends in Consumer electronics to our customers. We strive to learn from the 4 years of our association and look forward to the next decade of partnership together”.

With Dolby Atmos available on the boAt Immortal 1000D, players will be able to unlock incredible immersive audio when playing their favourite PC games. Dolby Atmos works by placing the sounds of the game all around a listener with three-dimensional precision so that gamers can react faster and more accurately. It enables the ability to pinpoint the position and movement of teammates and enemies — even from overhead or behind. Gamers will be immersed in a more intense gaming experience that brings crystal clear, hair-raising realism to even the busiest of battlefields, so they can catch the subtle, potentially game-changing sounds they’ve been missing. These headphones also feature a 7.1 Channel Surround Audio created by the brands very own boAt Plugin Labz which processes high-fidelity sound and is optimized by experts in gaming audio immersion. Users can switch between 7.1 Channel Surround Audio or Dolby Atmos while gaming.

boAt Immortal 1000D comes with Dual mics for crystal clear and distortion-free communication between friends and foes. These also sport a remote to control audio, mic and LEDs for seamless voice and video conversations across YouTube, Discord, Twitch, and other streaming platforms. A long sturdy secure braided cable ensures durability and a USB connector ensures easy connectivity across all laptop and desktop gaming setups.   The headphones shut out external noise using special closed earcups that fully cover your ears, aided by plush cushions that form a perfect seal for greater sound isolation. A new breathable weave minimizes sweat and heat build-up generated by skin contact, while the ultra-soft foam’s improved density greatly reduces the headset’s clamping force for unparalleled comfort. The earcups have a built-in automatic breathing RGB LED light effect to complete one’s gaming setup.
